Justin Bieber certainly knows how to make an entrance, and he didn’t let the crowd reaction dissuade him. The embattled pop star made a surprise appearance on CBS’s “Fashion Rocks” alongside model Lara Stone. The two were on hand to introduce a performance by Rita Ora, but Bieber had a show of his own first.
Almost immediately, he announced that he wasn’t really comfortable unless he was in his Calvins. He then asked Stone if she minded, and of course she didn’t.
Boos eventually turned to cheers as Bieber stripped down to a pair of Calvin Klein boxer briefs. The singer has been making more headlines lately for his arrests, court cases, accidents and celebrity feuds than he has for his music or artistry, which could explain the initial negative reaction.
After introducing Ora and while still in his briefs, Bieber even struck a few poses for his fans, now that they were fully cheering … or at least the loud cheers were drowning out any vocal dissent in the crowd.
Ora’s performance was accompanied by a Calvin Klein fashion show, and there has been recent speculation that Bieber will be a spokesmodel for the company. If so, you can be sure the folks at Calvin Klein were paying very close attention to that audience reaction.
“Fashion Rocks” is a unique hybrid rock concert and fashion show fundraiser event, which means the star’s strip tease was all for a good cause.
